city, intention preparations underway with less than 72 hours before the first presidential debate. both campaigns ready for a high stakes night that could be pivotal. polls show the race is neck and neck but president obama has open up leads in self key swing states. one is colorado. that is where the first presidential debate is on wednesday night. both have been trying to lower expectations thinking if voters do not expect too much whatever you get could be impressive. president obama is at a didisadvantage in the expectatis game. there a new abc news-washington post poll showing the majority of voters think he will win the debate. only 29 percent expect romney will be on top. ed henry is in nevada this afternoon where the president is preparing for the debates. john roberts, first, though, with the other campaign. what is the romney camp up to? >>reporter: they are headed to denver with a big rally at wings over the rockies air and space museum. what we will see tonight is a shift in strategy. the governor's attempts at framing this as a referendum on president obama have not b
what obama is talking about. it's utterly amazing, hard to debate somebody who has totally different plans than he really has said in the past. >> does this mean the president has fulfilled his promise to get unemployment below 8% and this isn't a one-term proposition? >> you know, you can't deny the numbers. 7.8% is, in fact, lower than 8%, and that's kind of the benchmark that the republicans have laid out. i'm sure they are extremely disappointed that there are better job numbers in the united states of america because they have been trying to sabotage any efforts, every day i see it in the congress, they have been trying to sabotage any efforts that would actually make the economy better, and now they're just going to have to live with that number. they'll spin it any way they want, but there it is. >> i think bill clinton would call this number lower, just simple arithmetic. jan schakowsky, thank you for joining me this morning. >> and happy birthday to you. >> thank you. thank you so much. we want to show you those numbers, 7.8% unemployment, the low nest nearly to yours. emplo
that president obama is bringing there. he should have brought this wednesday night to the debate. >> he should have brought this wednesday night. that's what most people are looking for. he's taking this news, tempering it which is what he should be doing if democrats try to spike the football or take a victory lap, i think that will be a big mistakes, but he's bringing a lot of energy right now which is what he's supposed to do. and i think hopefully people are going to expect to see that from him -- his folks will expect to see that from him the next time they debate. >> jonathan, he's telling the folks on sesame street, big board, elmo, you're not going to end up on the unemployment line. >> chris harris sent out a tweet saying is it big bird is the only thing we'll remember out of the debate and i wrote back, good question. because i think it's true. the president's on it. you have big bird showing up at a romney rally. today, we're talking about it now. it's something that really resonates no matter how poorly you think the president did, the fact that we're all talking about big bird and
of zingers, donald trump advises on twitter, in debate mitt romney should ask obama why auto by fri states born in kenya, raised in indonesia. i think that's a great idea, don't you? he's already got his birther joke handy. why not go straight for the birthers. >> his facts are as accurate as the republican facts have been. that was never said in obama's autobiography. it was a silly thing that a publicity agent had made years before. but just to pick up on karen's point for a second, i think she's onto something. you don't come to a gun fight with a butter knife. that's effectively what romney is doing. debates are about, guess what, debates. that means you come with facts and ideas. and it's hard for me to understand what exactly romney is coming to this debate with. >> 20% across the board tax cut. >> right. which has to mean a tax increase for the middle class. it's the only way to pay for it if you want it to be revenue neutral. he can't make the argument about the economy because as we've said, he'll try to make the argument that obama has been an infective steward. we're now protect
over to the obama -- >> karen? >> i was going to say the other thing, to julian's point, it's a debate which means unlike the debates that mitt romney did earlier this year where you have maybe 30 seconds to get in an answer and you don't necessarily get to answer every time, it's just him and president obama sitting there with a moderator. so he should be prepared for the fact that there is a possibility of a follow-up question that says, okay, how are you going to do that? yes, let's take the time for you to walk us through it. that being said, look, he's going to get a certain amount of gravitas just sitting there on the stage with the president. whether or not he blows that with trying to use cute words and phrases -- >> zingers? >> i think as karen and julian have suggested those zingers are not going to work. you have to have a sense of timing and rhythm p.. c he doesn't have no timing. it don't mean a thing if you ain't got that swing. the zings won't make a difference. the contrast between obama and romney will show up even more seriously the lack of gravitas. i think it's the
's talking down the economy, strictly for political purposes. and if barack obama can't do something with that in the next debate, then there's really some problem with his debate performance because this is a slow one coming in over the plate. the trouble that the president has in talking about the whole subject is he can't be too optimistic -- of course. >> -- because in the past what's happened is when he's gotten too far ahead of himself in saying that things are looking rosy, there are still a lot of people out there who are hurting and they don't want to hear that. the president has to kind of walk a fine line. but any rational person should know when there's signs of hope, to run them down and minimize them and tell people that it's not good news isn't helpful for anybody except maybe your political fortunes. >> incapable of celebrating good news. julian, jonathan, thank you both. >>> neck, mitt walks his words backwards. >> let me see if i can come up with a two-minute answer that might have been more effective. liar! lie, lie, lie, liar, lie, lie, lie, lie, liar!

't know, kelly, i disagree with you. we haven't seen from president obama what his next four years would be, we have not seen anything from governor romney on what his business-- his presidency would look like, all he's done is attack the-- >> during the debate. >> what he will do during the debate i think is remind the american people of his record on counterterrorism, and that is not something that governor romney is going to be able to poke any holes in, and i think he will also remind the american people of when it comes to the economy, that it's the turn around is going to take time. >> oh. >> and you've seen president clinton talk about why it took eight years to get us surpluses and i think it will be finally clear, because, unfortunately. >> jehmu. >> the media has focused only on-- >> let me get the final word to angela. >> president obama has a record and the bottom line, we have anemic economy. people don't have jobs and they're still incleased home foreclosures and mitt romney has talked about what he's going to do to create a more prosperous america. >> most americans don't
